    What temp does your HWS go to? If it has a 50 degree limiter then everything can go in. PUL doesn't like temperatures over 60 degrees.

    i've just done a strip wash using the detergent method, however,the water doesnt have any suds in it during the 1st rinse... does that mean I am finished? or did I not put enough detergent in?

    Do another rinse just to make sure. I only use 1 small drop, so you should have had plenty in there.

    Do you use hot or cold for the rinses?

    Hot tends to remove it quicker and more efficiently.

    With the detergent strip wash....I read somewhere else that that method will only help if the nappies have lost absorbency, not if they are stinky, is that the case??
    And to do the strip wash, do you normally wait til all the nappies are clean and dry then put them thru again???

    Is it Bi carb that removes stench?
    Dunno, I have only strip washed in detergent.
    I am sure someone more helpful will come along.

    I have found it removes stench Helen, but then it depends on how bad they are I guess.

    I use canestin rinse too and it's fantastic

    Canestan rinse is an anti-bacterial, anti-fungal liquid rinse that goes in the rinse cycle.

    Is it ok for PUL??

    well I was just about to start a new post and thought I would quickly check this thread and it answered all my questions. We have just had a really baaaad batch of thrush and poor freds bot was sooo sore. we've been using sposies while it cleared up with the creams but before I put her back into the MCN I wanted to strip wash them and use a canasten rinse. Now I know exactly what to do

    Thank you everyone for this information - it rocks

    Has anyone here done a strip wash of BumGenius nappies? Do you use the dishwashing liquid, hot water and three rinses as well? And can you strip wash the covers or just the liners?
